    Bump this with a shoutout to Jack Purcells. Been trying to kop some all white CPs for months with no luck. With summer fast approaching, finally gave in and went to the mall (gasp) and returned an old shoe @ Nordstroms and got the Jack Purcells in all white for $0.06.

    I know people say these look better in person, and they certainly do. I thought the blue mark in the front would bug me--but it doesn't at all. Been wearing them all the time and really like them--comfy and they just look nice. Good alternative to tie you over if you can't get CPs in your size for a reasonable price.

    Can't go wrong with white or black JP's... I'm on my third pair but this pair I've had a problem with the tag at the back coming off and the front piece coming off on the side as well...

    Thoughts?


    Some of the best Vans I've seen. I'd totally get these if I hadn't just got a pair.

    Total n00b here, is this okay for $23? I will probably switch to grey laces though. [​IMG]

    Could someone please explain Flight Club NY/LA to me? I'm looking at this pair of Spiz'ikes that I like but there are two prices ($220 and $240). Both are apparently "brand new in box" but why the twenty dollar difference?

    ..that site is crazy..

    Uh, seriously. It's the 4Chan of sneaker websites..for me at least. I can barely navigate it but apparently it's super-legit so whatever.

    Besides the demand, it also depends on the rarity. Certain sizes are harder to find than others, hence why they command those prices.

    Shore, those are dope. Wish they came in all white.

    I did some more looking around and a few shoes I like usually have 2-3 prices. Keep in the mind, these are the exact same model, size, and (allegedly) the exact same condition. Would you order the cheaper pair or the most expensive?

    It's a consignment shop and doesn't the owner of the shoe sets the price for their item and the store just gets a percentage of that sale or they add their own mark-up for their own profit.

    Spizikes sucks btw.

    You're just jello because I'd be getting four sneakers for the price of one.
